Heads up! This blog post hasn't been updated in over 2 years. CodePen is an ever changing place, so if this post references features, you're probably better off checking the docs. Get in touch with support if you have further questions.
Using CodePen's Professor Mode (and a trusty whiteboard from time to time) Gregor walked the class through creating a great group of different experiments, all the while encouraging creativity and exploration in code.
The workshop began with a simple grid of squares, which was a great layout for people to start getting creative with colors and animations!
They then progressed into creating fractals!
And ended impressively with a CSS-made Penrose triangle!
Gregor said he welcomes the idea of taking the workshop on the road, so if you're looking for someone to add a little artistic flair to your conference, you can reach him on Twitter!
